    RSA, now owned by computer storage firm EMC Corp, has a long history of entanglement with the government. In the 1990s, the company was instrumental in stopping a government plan to include a chip in computers that would've allowed the government to spy on people.
    So, how long until your TV watches you? How long until nothing at all can be trusted? How long before private conversatios must be whispered?

    It can't happen here! Right? Thoughts?

    It's just to keep you safe.

    Terrorists are everywhere.

    I think I need to go to sleep now. Just me and the cats. Safe. Warm. Protected.






    (the robots are coming...I must go now....I hope whomever finds this message will pass on the memory of when humans roamed free on the earth....oh, god, they're coming for the catnip...THE STAGE GOES DARK. WE HEAR CLANKING SOUNDS. A SCREAM. A MEOW OF PROTEST. SILENCE.
